[Bug 16870] New: Resolve containing block discrepancy for Grid/Exclusions


           Summary: Resolve containing block discrepancy for
           Product: CSS
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Grid Layout
        AssignedTo: pcupp@microsoft.com
        ReportedBy: cjon@microsoft.com

The CSS Grid spec says that grid cells serve as the containing block for items,
while the CSS Exclusions spec says that Exclusions only affect the wrapping
context of the containing block. 

However, the desired behavior is likely that an exclusion positioned in one
cell affects the content of adjacent cells. 

Accordingly we may want to change the grid spec to suggest that grid items are
sized as if their containing block were the grid cell, but that their
containing block is actually the grid for all other purposes (e.g. interacting
with surrounding content.)
